The endurance of our products is the greatest lever for conserving resources.
We focus on ecological products and have the entire product life cycle in mind: from production to use to circular economy/recycling. The focus is on the use of climate and environment-friendly materials.
We manufacture durable designs. All components of our space-creating systems can be combined and adapted to current space-planning requirements. The repeatability and reusability of our partition wall elements without material loss ensures a high degree of flexibility and sustainability in the case of future room changes.
Thinking and acting sustainably is not something new for us
As a member of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), we have been actively promoting more sustainability strategies in the construction and real estate industry since 2010 for good reason.
The independent non-profit organization is Europe's largest network for sustainable construction and stands behind the DGNB certification system for sustainable buildings and neighborhoods.
We make our contribution to ecological building quality in numerous projects
Goldbach Kirchner products are already part of many buildings with green building certification, including by DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council), LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), Minergie and BNB (Sustainable Building Rating System).
Environmentally friendly and sustainable
In our choice of materials, we focus on reusable components.
Glass is made of sand, soda and lime. Raw materials that are most abundant in the earth's crust. The material glass is endlessly recyclable and emission-free.
Steel and aluminum are materials that are 100 percent recyclable. Recycling can reduce CO2 emissions and save up to 90 percent of the energy required.
Chipboard and wood-based materials come from sustainably managed forest areas (FSC and PEFC certified) and from regional suppliers. Low emission values are important to us.
Aluminum for a sustainable future
We abstain from fossil fuels and focus on CO2 neutrality
At our sites, climate- and environment-friendly thinking and action is the focus in both production and administration. We do not use any fossil fuels to heat our plants and offices, obtaining the required heat energy by thermally recycling our production residues from wood-based materials. Our photovoltaic system produces electricity without climate-damaging CO2 emissions and, with an output of 660 kWp, has covered most of our electricity requirements since 2001.
In our company fleet, we are increasingly relying on e-mobility and the supply of our web servers is climate-neutral. We also ensure that the production of print products is CO2-neutral.
We show responsibility for our production and recycle bindingly
Recycling management criteria play an important role for us. We operate a consistent waste and recyclables separation. This also includes the collection of all transport and packaging materials from our construction sites and feeding them for recycling.
In order to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible, we examine further possible uses and use production residues to generate heat.
